Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1

This version was released in HLT Health Training Package release 1.0 and meets the requirements of the New Standards for Training Packages.

Significant changes to elements and performance criteria

Revised evidence requirements, including volume and frequency of assessment

Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines.

This unit applies to all workers who may be required to provide CPR in a range of situations, include community and workplace settings.

Specific licensing requirements relating to this competency, including requirements for refresher training should be obtained from the relevant state/territory Work Health and Safety Regulatory Authority.

Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements define the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria specify the level of performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Respond to an emergency situation

1.1 Recognise an emergency situation

1.2 Identify, assess and minimise immediate hazards to health and safety of self and others

1.3 Assess the casualty and recognise the need for CPR

1.4 Seek assistance from emergency response services

2. Perform CPR procedures

2.1 Perform CPR

2.2 Display respectful behaviour towards casualty

2.3 Operate automated external defibrillator (AED) according to manufacturer’s instructions

3. Communicate details of the incident

3.1 Accurately convey incident details to emergency response services

3.2 Report details of incident to workplace supervisor as appropriate

3.3 Maintain confidentiality of records and information in line with statutory and/or organisational policies

Foundation Skills

The Foundation Skills described those required skills (language, literacy and numeracy) that are essential to performance.

  • Oral communication – in order to make an accurate verbal report to supervisor and emergency response services

The remaining foundation skills essential to performance are explicit in the performance criteria of this unit.

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release

Notes

Release 1

This version was released in HLT Health Training Package release 1.0 and meets the requirements of the New Standards for Training Packages.

Significant changes to elements and performance criteria. Revised evidence requirements, including volume and frequency of assessment

Performance Evidence

The candidate must show evidence of the ability to complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage tasks and manage contingencies in the context of the job role.

There must be demonstrated evidence that the candidate has completed the following tasks at least once in line with state/territory regulations, first aid codes of practice, ARC guidelines and workplace procedures:

  • conducted a hazard assessment and identified strategies to minimise risk
  • demonstrated safe manual handling techniques
  • assessed airway, breathing and responsiveness of casualty
  • performed at least four minutes of uninterrupted CPR on both an adult and an infant resuscitation manikin placed on the floor, demonstrating the following techniques on each:
  • checking for response and normal breathing
  • recognising abnormal breathing
  • opening and clearing the airway
  • using correct hand location, compression depth rate in line with the ARC recommended ratio of compressions and ventilations
  • acting in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
  • following single rescuer procedure, including the demonstration of a rotation of operators with minimal interruptions to compressions
  • followed the prompts of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
  • provided an accurate verbal report of the incident
  • responded to at least one simulated resuscitation scenario contextualised to the candidate’s workplace/community setting.

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate essential knowledge required to effectively complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage tasks and manage contingencies in the context of the work role. This includes knowledge of:

  • state/territory regulations, first aid codes of practice and workplace procedures including:
  • ARC Guidelines relevant to the provision of CPR
  • safe work practices to minimise risks and potential hazards
  • infection control principles and procedures, including use of standard precautions
  • requirements for currency of skill and knowledge
  • legal, workplace and community considerations, including:
  • need for stress-management techniques and available support following an emergency situation
  • duty of care requirements
  • respectful behaviour towards a casualty
  • own skills and limitations
  • consent
  • privacy and confidentiality requirements
  • importance of debriefing
  • considerations when providing CPR, including:
  • airway obstruction due to body position
  • appropriate duration and cessation of CPR
  • appropriate use of an AED
  • chain of survival
  • standard precautions
  • basic anatomy and physiology relating to:
  • absence of normal breathing
  • anatomy of the external chest
  • physiology relating to response/consciousness
  • upper airway anatomy and effect of positional change.

Assessment Conditions

Skills must be demonstrated working individually:

  • in an environment that provides realistic in-depth, industry-validated scenarios and simulations to assess candidates’ skills and knowledge.

In addition, assessment resources must include:

  • adult and infant resuscitation manikins in line with ARC Guidelines for the purpose of assessment of CPR procedures
  • equipment, including:
  • an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training device.

Simulated assessment environments must simulate the real-life working environment where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment.

Assessors must satisfy the NVR/AQTF mandatory competency requirements for assessors. In addition, assessors must hold:

  • a current advanced first aid certificate

OR

  • at least three years’ experience as a health professional, nurse or emergency services provider
